Plummer continues to make strides

Plummer is ready to make a big name for himself and college coaches are getting intrigued with his ability.

Four-star class of 2017 shooting guard Tyler Plummer has continued to make strides since getting to La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard has impressed from day one, and now is off to a good start to the year.

“Tyler has been extremely active and tough for us,” said La Lumiere Head Coach Shane Heirman. “He brings an edge to our team and has done a tremendous job of guarding and rebounding from the guard position.”

Recruiting wise Plummer has mentioned schools such as Harvard, Stanford, Northwestern, and DePaul in the past, and Heirman is expecting that list to get much longer.

“Anybody and everybody that comes in is always intrigued by him right away,” explained Heirman. “It is early in his recruitment and there is a lot of interest. He is really, really wide open and right now he is taking it all in.”

For now though the issue for Heirman and the La Lumiere coaching staff is getting the most out of Plummer and making him realize just how supremely talented he is on the basketball court.

“I think for him he has to understand how good he is, how tough he is, and how strong he is, and apply that to the game,” said Heirman. “He doesn’t realize how good he can be, and hopefully he realizes that and refuses to let people stop him. He is someone who can get where he wants on the court, and now he has to have the mentality to always get there.”

With good size, solid athleticism, and a unique ability to score, Plummer definitely is someone who should continue to really open up eyes on the recruiting trail as he continues to get big minutes for La Lumiere.

Currently Plummer is the No. 38 player overall and the No. 5 shooting guard in his class.
